About the ADM Local Database

The Application Deployment Manager (ADM) local database is a small SQLAnywhere database that functions with the Siebel Management Server during the deployment of application customizations. The ADM local database serves as persistent storage for deployment data, environment information, and deployment status details for each ADM deployment. Specifically, the ADM local database contains:

  • ADM Package Information. During the ADM deployment process, you load an ADM package's description into the local database. The Siebel Management Server parses the ADM descriptor file of an ADM deployment package and stores this package-specific information. This information includes general package information, deployment groups, deployment dependencies, and deployment unit information for each deployment group.

    NOTE:  The physical ADM package files are not stored in the ADM local database.

  • Siebel Server Information. The ADM local database contains information on the Siebel Enterprise Server, Siebel Servers, Web servers, and other entities of the application framework. This information is cached in the ADM local database.
  • ADM Deployment History Information. The ADM local database stores records on each ADM deployment session, including details on general session information, when it deploys, and its status throughout the deployment.
  • ADM Enterprise Profile. When you create an ADM deployment session, the ADM local database stores a copy of the ADM enterprise profile referenced in the create session command. An ADM enterprise profile stores the deployment configuration information and defines a set of default deployment parameters. For more information on this file, see About the ADM Enterprise Profile.

The ADM local database is stored in the following location on the Siebel Management Server: MgmtSrvrInstallDir\ADM\admdb.dbf, and accesses the Siebel Management Server through Java Database Connectivity (JDBC).

NOTE:  The configuration of the ADM local database generally occurs during the installation. However, further updates to the ADM local database's properties can be made at other times by updating the file, configuration.adm.xml. It is not required to directly alter or manipulate any data in the ADM local database. All necessary changes are made automatically.
